What is the inevitable outcome of a botched vasectomy? That is right, a beautiful but unexpected baby.
So, who should be on the hook for the food, clothing, shelter, care and college education of that bouncing baby? Scott and Donnita Bassinger of Eugene, Oregon, say the doctor who performed the not-so-effective vasectomy should, and they are suing.
Don't think the Bassingers are suing because they are sorry to be the parents of their new baby boy. Quite the opposite, reports The Register-Guard. The surprised parents, who did not find out the vasectomy was, er, unsuccessful, until Donna became pregnant, are quite pleased by the birth. It is just that it is not what they were led to believe would be the outcome of a vasectomy.
